    Dear All

    Just a note to inform you that an exhibition: Salient & Sanctuary: India in Flanders & Brighton is open now and daily until 27th August 2007 at the In Flanders Fields Museum in the famous Cloth Hall in the market square of Ypres, Belgium.

    The exhibits concern the background of the Indian Army, the services of the Indian Corps in France and Flanders 1914-1915 and the hospitalisation of Indian soldiers at Brighton and other towns on the south coast coast of England.

    Exhibits include medals and plaques, trench maps and documents, photographs and several interesting artefacts including the tunic worn by our friend Rana Chhina's grandfather in the 53rd Sikhs in WW1. The tunic is complete with medal ribbons (including the IDSM), havildar-major' s stripes, service chevrons and brass shoulder titles.

    The exhibition occupies its own dedicated space and entry is free.

    I hope group members will find this of interest and if anyone is passing through or near Ypres during the next few weeks perhaps they will find the time to take a look.
